Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm a math and computing student and have to build a small Java compiler (Java -> ByteCode) with flex and bison. Since both flex and bison compile and run very differently on different machines, I need to send my project on some linux (in form of VirutalBox file).
Can someone tell me which linux to choose. This is what I need:
- linux system under 70Mb installed on hard disk
- small and compact graphical environment (Xfce or similar)
70Mb should be with installed graphics and with installed gcc.
Bison and Flex are optional (i can install that later with no problem).
System itself should be with kernel and gcc not older than a year (I don't have time to mess with installing all day).
I'm using a Linux for a few years so I don't need somet easy-to-use linux.
Just as I was afraid of ..
I tried Damn Small Linux, but there are some driver issues on my laptop ... fixing them would need more time than to build my own distro ...
I'll have a look at some more of those distros.
